EDIT: I'm quite sure I'll like the SV's. I'm just concerned they could be fragile and wondering what SV and other vintage PS players have found

So...looking forward to the stories!
Only the very early Belgium made PS 85's were fragile and basically so bad that a great percentage never left the factory because they were cracked during manufacturing. They were experimenting with the braided graphite/kevlar production process and the early models were far from perfect.
